Within the Artist-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host the artist Gelare Khoshgozaran. Born in 1986 in Tehran, Iran, Khoshgozaran studied Photography at the University of Arts in Tehran in 2009 and the University of Southern California in Los Angeles in 2011. By the use of video and writing, she undertakes a committed artistic work. She films and studies situations of war and militarized violence to understand and witness in which way they affect our sense of home. Gelare has been pursuing a very active artistic career since 2009, especially developed in the US, with many films and publications. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles, and will be staying in Studio Amarillo during September 2023.
